Art Director Graphic Designer Front-End Dev

A Seattle-based art director and front-end developer with nearly two decades of experience in graphic and web design.

Hi, I'm Lance.

I am Seattle-based art director and front-end developer with nearly two decades (yikes!) of experience in graphic and web design, and team management.

The ability to design for multiple channels is an essential skill in today's environment. My knowledge of time-tested media and new technologies — and the backend that drives them — help me provide cohesive design services to my clients. My solutions are strategic, eye-catching, speak to their target market, and deliver substantial results in highly-competitive markets.

I have worked in the corporate environment since 1998, and have art directed and managed teams for most of my tenure. I have comprehensive knowledge in brand identity systems, event and on-stage design, digital and print campaigns, and web development. I have lead, participated in, and strategized several campaigns and brand relaunches that have met and exceeded project intentions.

Please explore my portfolio and do not hesitate to contact me with questions or opportunities.
